Please join the Steamboat Wranglers in welcoming Lewallen Newman to the team. Lewallen comes east to Steamboat from Provo, Utah, where he started playing hockey with the Peaks Polar Bears. He progressed on to U14 and U16 with the Junior Grizzlies in Salt Lake City, before heading to Montana to play for the Butte Cobras in the NA3HL.
Newman then decided to make the move to Steamboat Springs. “I like this team. Coach Ryan (Dingle) is amazing to work with. He seems dedicated to elevating the individual while focusing on teamwork. The coaches and staff are very professional. Everyone on the team and who works with the team have been very welcoming and friendly. All the guys on the team have a lot of heart. I am proud to step on the ice with them.”
Wrangler Assistant Coach Kenny Simmons writes, “Lewallen is a young buck looking to come in and develop his skills here in Steamboat. He’s got good size and a work ethic that fits right in with the other guys on the team. We’re excited as a coaching staff to see his skill progress throughout the remainder of the season.”
Newman is looking forward to playing in Steamboat Springs, which is also known as Ski Town U.S.A. “Steamboat Springs is a very beautiful town. My favorite is seeing the ski resort right next to the rink, especially when it’s lit up at night. With all this beautiful snow, I’ve got to learn how to ski and snowboard!”
